Destin to Tarpon Springs

So, For anyone interested I set off five days ago from Shalimar Florida heading to Tarpon Springs Fl. This is my first "big boy" trip and so far everything has gone well enough. The wind has been on my nose the entire way so I have been a motor boat sticking to the GICW except for a short excursion outside to get from Panama City to Port St Joe. I have made around 120 nm almost entirely under power. I look forward to being a sailboat for a while.

I am currently sitting in Apalchicola waiting for the wind to shift, which it is predicted to around Thursday or so, and then I will be heading across the Gulf for a crossing of roughly 142 nm to the Tarpon Springs area.
It's my happy pill
